Dear Moody Church Family Member,


In the Great Commission, recorded in Matthew 28, Jesus commanded the disciples to spread the Gospel to the ends of the earth. Today, our Global Outreach Ministry financially supports 52 active and retired missionary households in dozens of countries. In addition, through our Key Global Initiatives (KGI) strategy, we partner with indigenous believers across the globe to strengthen their local churches and plant new ones. We currently have seven KGI partnerships. All of this is overseen by our Global Outreach Committee. We also support eight Hope for Kids partners, who bring hope and healing to thousands of children both here in Chicago and around the world. For more information on our strategy and partners visit www.moodychurch.org/global-outreach 


In addition to the money allocated for monthly support from the General Fund (~13% of the total budget), 10% of all estate giving is allocated toward missions projects. These funds have been used to support evangelists in Albania, train pastors in Brazil, plant churches in Chicago, and many other Gospel initiatives! The Lord is using the resources we offer back to Him to make His name known among the nations.  


Annual support to our Global Outreach partners exceeds $1 million. Your faithful stewardship is having an incredible impact by enabling believers called to serve the Kingdom in a full-time capacity to use their gifts to equip the Church. Thank you for your faithfulness as we obey and celebrate the Great Commission together! 


Would you like to hear more about what the Lord is doing around the world through your gifts to The Moody Church? Email Kaitlyn at missions@moodychurch.org and ask to receive the missionary prayer letters. Can I challenge you to spend just one hour a month—the length of a single TV program—reading these letters? It will fill your mind and heart with the confidence that Jesus reigns over all the earth! You won’t regret it. 


Finally, mark your calendar: Global Outreach Week will be June 2–9 this year. We’re working to make it a great week for our missionaries, ministry partners, and you to connect and encourage one another. Stay tuned for details as the time nears.
